And the weekend comes to a close… with no ride.
I haven’t ridden since last Sunday, when I was in Philadelphia and riding the glorious roads along the Delaware River. Got back to San Diego and got busy with work and then the rains came back. Looks like rain is going to be a part of this week too, especially the weekend… great.
The good news is that I’ve got the punkin with me almost all the way until I leave for Taiwan on 3/7. It’s great to have this time with her now since I’ll be gone for 2.5 weeks on this first trip to Taiwan for ASI. She’s a wonderful companion and I’m very proud to be her daddy.
Today we got to hang out at my mom’s for a bit for a small family brunch. As always, it was great to spend time with them- I come from a family where gatherings are a common occurrence… and I like that.
Gonna be in Taiwan for a few weeks and fortunately I will get to ride my new bike while I am there. AND… getting the same bike to ride and race here in San Diego too… and looking forward to it! I’m really, really looking forward to getting the chance to ride in Taiwan too. I’ve only ever done one event there- not that I’m racing on this first trip over- so I am excited to get out and ride while there. I can’t wait to get out and explore more of the Taichung area. I already think of Taiwan as my second home, so I really want to learn more about it and become more self-reliant there… even considering getting a scooter.
This first trip to Taiwan will also serve as the return trip to San Diego for Ann and Lily. Needless to say, I’m very excited about it. For about the 5th time in a row, the Taipei Show happens to be on my birthday, so I’m looking forward to spending another birthday with my Taiwan friends and family. There’s constant talk of changing the show dates, but I admit I’d kinda miss this new tradition. The show ends on Saturday 3/19, so I’m looking forward to having a late birthday celebration with Ann and Lily and Ann’s family… *my* family.
And now it’s time for a little more quality time with the punkin. Movie and popcorn… sounds like a winner.
